Arboretum to host annual rose exhibition

Visitors to The North Carolina Arboretum will be encouraged to stop and smell the roses when the Asheville Blue Ridge Rose Society Exhibition debuts to the public from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20.

Award-winning roses of every color and size will be featured at this year’s exhibition, “Roses, Roses, Roses!” Experts will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about selection, care, and history of these garden plants. A sale will be held in conjunction with the exhibition, which will include rose plants, fertilizer, and soil amendments, and educational programs will be offered throughout the weekend.

Programs during the Rose Society Exhibition include:

Knock Out Roses, Disease Resistant Roses, Growing Roses on Slopes, Basic Rose Care, Old Garden Roses, Miniature Roses and Roses for Beginners.

The Rose Society Exhibition is one of the most popular events hosted by The North Carolina Arboretum. The exhibition is free for Arboretum Society members or with the standard parking fee ($8 per personal motor vehicle).
